Apr 13th, 2010 | By Hot News Reporter | Category: Insurance Today

(BusinessWire) – GEICO recently partnered with the national program, Recycled Rides™, to provide used vehicles to three local families (two from Long Island and one from Brooklyn) who could use the reliable transportation. The vehicles were presented to the three families during a recent ceremony attended by New York Assemblyman Dean Murray.

GEICO donated the used vehicles while local National Auto Body Council (NABC) body shops donated their repair services. Recycled Rides is an awareness project that encourages local NABC members to refurbish and donated recycled vehicles to local families in their communities.

“GEICO was delighted to have this opportunity to make a direct impact on our local community,” said Ken Lalia, a GEICO auto damage manager who helped present the vehicles to the families. “It’s a pleasure to be part of such an honorable program. This was really a community effort and we were glad to be a part of it.”

“It’s such a privilege to have companies like GEICO participate in this program,” said Recycled Rides chairman, Nick Notte. “Having a vehicle is something people often take for granted, but there are families out there that can use the reliable transportation. We’ve found that it often changes their lives. We are delighted to partner with companies like GEICO who really make a difference in our communities.”
